negitive By Bill on 9/21/13Bill wouldn't recommend this product to a friendAlways reads 1.018 even after Calibration with distilled water and 35 ppm calibration fluid.I removed battery and put back in and it read 1.026 which is correct but it only worked one time and it's right back to 1.018 again.Called company and was given run around so waste of money for me anyway.
easy,accurate and worthy By MVP on 8/11/13MVP would recommend this product to a friendthis stuff is really fun to use even a old person can do that.. the accurate is very impressive not like my old hydrometer read at 1.022 then when i use this test machine its surprise me that it read 1.026. for a 4 months that i used this plastic hydrometer it gives me false reading.. good thing i buy this one, expensive but its worth every penny..
Excellent! By Paul on 8/8/13Paul would recommend this product to a friendThis should have been one of my first purchases. This is super easy to use and so much better and using the little plastic guys. There is the initial cost, but it is totally worth it. Definitely recommend this item!

EASY!!!! By Steven on 4/5/13Steven would recommend this product to a friendIt's a no brainer, if your looking for simplicity look no further. It does not get any easier. Worth every penny!
This is a must buy for everyone By Seth on 3/30/13Seth would recommend this product to a friendThis has been by far the best purchase I have made. This little thing has made my life so so so so much easier. I calibrate it once out of the box and haven't calibrated it once since then. I know it says you should calibrate it, but I haven't seen any change when I do. I assume that it's dead on. I treat all my fish with hypo salinity and I measure it out to 1.007. I haven't lost one fish yet from hypo so I know that this thing is dead on.
Durable, user friendly & accurate By Brian0515 on 2/25/13Brian0515 would recommend this product to a friendThis product is extremely easy to use! Worth every penny I paid. If your undecided on what to get or unsure if you want to spend the extra cash...do it, you won't regret having simplicity and convenience.
Love it! By James on 1/13/13James would recommend this product to a friendGreat , Easy to use and accurate.
Get one ASAP By Joseph on 12/28/12Joseph would recommend this product to a friendMakes testing easy. Turn it on, add water and hit read. Spend the cash up front for this product so you dont have multiple other refractometers collecting dust, broken, or just poor quality sitting around.
Good Product/Bad Service By Bryan on 12/18/12Bryan would recommend this product to a friendThe refractometer itself is a brain dead easy device to use, however when I first attempted to calibrate it, it was giving me a calibration range error code on every attempt (according to the manual). I had used RO/DI water according to the manual specifications.
When I called Milwaukee Customer support I greeted by a very unfriendly customer support agent. He told me that I HAD to use distilled water, which is a bit surprising since RO/DI should be pretty much as pure as you can get. He insisted that nothing was wrong with the Unit and that it was my water.
Just to be sure I went to a LFS and used their RO/DI water before and had the same error. When I used distilled water I still got the same error so I KNEW it wasn't an issue with my water.
Thankfully BRS has far more competent and helpful service then Milwaukee and I was able to get a replacement easily which thankfully now works as it should.
Use it everyday !! By Chris on 11/27/12Chris would recommend this product to a friendI was using a regular refractometer and decided to go digital, I never looked back !! This works great, mine was getting inaccurate temp readings so I contacted Milwaukee and they sent me a brand new unit at no charge AND said keep your old unit !!! This is the exact same unit sold by F&S at $199. Bulk Reef Supply is does it again !
